To-Do List

Introduction

There are a lot of missing pages and blank spaces in this wiki. In an effort to assist in finding all the problems, please edit this page with bulleted lists of things you see that need done. When an item on the list has been worked on, indicate with parenthesis what was done, and if it still needs more info, pictures, formatting, or anything else.

The main goal for this page is to lay out everything that needs user contributions, so even if you only have a few minutes, it is very easy to find something you are particularly interested in or knowledgeable about and shape it up a bit. Be ambitious!

Important

  • Stat Squish - As of Patch 6.0 all sources of Experience EXP are now out of date.
    • Gatherer's Boon (I have attempted to remove references to HQ gathering, but may have missed some Freedom4556 (talk) 18:20, 30 December 2021 (UTC))
    • All Belts removed from loot tables and sidequests. Report in if you find any lingering. Freedom4556 (talk) 17:40, 23 January 2022 (UTC)
      • All recipes removed from craftable belts Freedom4556 (talk) 17:52, 17 February 2022 (UTC)
  • A Realm Reborn Overhaul needs quest step counts updated. Remove the comment where the step count is the same
  • Portraits
  • Action pages
    • Differentiate between acquired and affinity for classes/jobs
    • Potencies at earlier levels
    • Populate gallery
    • Categorize into raid buffs, healing, mitigation, etc.

Endwalker

  • Job Gauge - still shows DPS stances on tanks. Not updated since Stormblood, looks like. Freedom4556 (talk) 21:49, 21 January 2022 (UTC)
    • 29.5.2022 - Updated some general info. Fixed PLD, WAR, DRK, WHM, AST, SAM, added SGE. It's still unclear whether Job gauge refers to an UI element or resource itself. Ingame tooltips seem to use both terms interchangeably.
    • 30.5.2022 - Most of the page is modernized, RPR and MNK are incomplete. Other jobs should be checked if they're correct, especially - GNB, SCH, MNK, DRG, NIN, RPR, MCH, BLM, SMN.
    • 2.6.2022 - Updated RPR gauge description Isabella_Murahj(talk)
    • 3.7.2022 - Updated BRD and BLM but someone should probably fix my Gramer. (Note: MCH is looking like it's been updated in a few years but I haven't finished my MCH yet so I'm not sure if my Gauges are correct yet.)
    • 4.7.2022 - Fixed some grammar and formatting. If I didn't miss anything, then these jobs still could use some checking and updating: MNK, GNB, SCH, DRG, MCH, SMN. Deo(talk)
    • Shouldn't we just make it so each job gauge shows data from their respective page? Eg. ===Paladin==={{:Oath Gauge}} and then just update respective gauge pages, so we don't have to write the same thing twice. Downside is that page would be quite packed. Also, we can probably delete most of the PvP-related job gauges, since it does not seem like they're ever coming back Deo (talk) 12:10, 15 July 2022 (UTC)
      • Yeah, transclusion is out because of all the images. If you wanted to wrap all the individual images in <noinclude></noinclude> tags then the gauge pages could be safely transcluded. Freedom4556 (talk) 04:55, 16 July 2022 (UTC)
      • Also, check out the "labeled section transclusion by header" add-on that is used for example on PvP Actions. Freedom4556 (talk) 04:57, 16 July 2022 (UTC)
    • Fixed/checked GNB and DRG. Now only MNK, MCH and SMN are missing. Deo (talk) 22:44, 23 September 2022 (UTC)
  • While this isn't too important can someone get a higher res image of Alphinaud's HW healer class icon I've used this one File:Green Arcanist.png but it's not pleasant to look at compared to the others. User:Mysterious_ZAP (talk)

Guides

Gear Set Images

For promotional images showing characters in all the new gear sets from a given piece of content side by side, list the order in which the types of gear appear in the description. An example can be seen here The gear sets are listed in order, from left to right, in the summary.

Templates

  • {{vendor list}} Template:vendor list needs to exclude event merchants: Category:Event merchants NPCs where | service = event merchant Freedom4556 (talk) 05:03, 25 March 2022 (UTC)
    • At the very list, where |status=historical is set in the price table.
    • Or if not that, add a switch where we can turn event vendors off/on with the default being off.
      • I think I've managed to get this partly working - if you check Aistan and check Copper Ore - you can see Copper Ore is historical in Aistan's list, and when you go to the Copper Ore page - Aistan is greyed out. I'm just waiting on the propogation rolling out to the other pages and updating them but it should go out to the event merchants eventually - seems to be going slow. Also trying to figure out an option where you can put vendor list|is historical vendor=n and it will hide/ignore them and won't show them. JohnnySolas (talk)
        • I went ahead and reverted those two (for correctness). If you need a couple to look at, The Iceman and Mineral Water are good candidates. Freedom4556 (talk) 22:50, 20 April 2022 (UTC)
          • Thank you for reverting - was just waiting on you looking at them and was going to change them back. I was too inpatient waiting for the wiki updating and Aistan was the first vendor that updated when I was doing the work last night JohnnySolas (talk)
  • Template:Vendor table needs to be fixed to work as described. Ideally, I'd like to use it on pages like Tarnished Alexandrian Bolt to show all the items that can be gotten in exchange for the item on the page. Right now we are having to build those tables manually, like on Behemoth Horn. Basically, the opposite of what Template:Vendor list does, which is all the vendors selling the item. I want all the vendors selling other things in exchange for the item. Freedom4556 (talk) 16:39, 11 February 2022 (UTC)
    • I tried to look at this last August and got stumped! Hopefully someone can figure it out. I think its just the Template:Vendor item table result format‎‎ that is the issue as the query seems to work and pull the info - it's just the item icon and the cost that don't show. JohnnySolas (talk)
    • Should work now, see if that fits your use case. Lvdr (talk) 13:15, 12 February 2022 (UTC)
      • It's looking great, couple pieces of feedback:
  1. See Bozjan Runner's Secrets (Head Gear), you escaped parenthesis in the purchased item but not in the currency.
  1. The cost column only goes 3 items wide, but as you see on Jalzahn, we need it to go at least 14 items wide. Freedom4556 (talk) 16:41, 12 February 2022 (UTC)
  2. Another feature needed so I can use the template with collectables. It needs to show how many of an item you are buying, in addition to how many items the cost is. Look at Oddly Delicate Pickaxe Part to see what I mean. Freedom4556 (talk) 20:21, 22 February 2022 (UTC)
  3. I think we shouldn't worry about the 13-14 wide thing - when I converted that NPC to a vendor and used the vendor tables I thought it was a good idea - but as they are relics we probably could just covert all the relic chain back to normal stdt tables and not use vendor list/rows etc ... would save having to amend this template as I can't think of any other vendor that would sell/buy for more than 13/14 items. JohnnySolas (talk)
Went ahead and made manual tables for the ultra-wide Jalzahn items. Freedom4556 (talk) 20:03, 24 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Requesting an addition to the properties for the Quest formatting templates. PollyEdaline (talk) 02:19, 20 January 2022 (UTC)
    • Add a "required items" property that can be optionally called by the table
      • Added. Lvdr (talk) 10:12, 24 January 2022 (UTC)
    • Split guaranteed and optional rewards on the table, with optional rewards being an optional parameter
      • Did this with split-optional-rewards parameter to table header; needs item-rewards parameter to work. This way the behavior doesn't change for existing tables. Lvdr (talk) 13:48, 22 January 2022 (UTC)
  • The Action Infobox Template could use a tweak to prevent Casting from being a property that shows up on every infobox, as the information is not necessary and every other property is technically optional (even the Name, although this will always at least pull from the page title). I've already tweaked it so that Range, Radius, and Targeting are no longer mysteriously in the same function and will no longer show on every single action box even when the information is completely irrelevant or self-evident. They can still be filled in if necessary and can display. PollyEdaline (talk) 22:15, 20 January 2022 (UTC)

Crafting and Gathering

Side Quests

  • Requesting a change to Template:Quest infobox for a field to indicate quest sync and maybe the level sync range (for beast tribes and Stormblood+ sidequests).

Locations

Dungeon/Trial/Raid Guides

Lore

Note: Be sure and tag any pages with Category:Lore, or its subcategories of Category:Lore/History, Category:Lore/People, or Category:Lore/Geography.
Category:Lore/People includes members of tribes; anything that reasonable in-game characters would consider people.
Category:Lore/History includes any dead people, defunct civilizations, disbanded groups, or other nouns relevant to the history of something in the game.
Category:Lore/Geography includes celestial geography within the Sea of Stars.

Start a discussion on Talk pages if you want to change the tags of an existing article.

Lore Pages

Lore pages - feel free to create any Lore pages and add lore information to any existing pages.

Lore Cleanup Efforts

Collapsing of extremely short lore pages with overlapping topics; e.g. move the short pages into the bigger ones, make an appropriate subsection, and then turn the old page into a redirect pointing to that section.

...gosh theres so many

General Formatting cleanup

Character Lore Sections

NPC pages that have badly-formatted or out of date lore sections in need of a cleanup.


Transcription from official sources

  • We could use more editors who have access to real-world copies of Encyclopedia Eorzea vol 1 and vol 2. A number of minor characters have descriptions that would be useful to quote on their pages, and often contain clarifying information such as ages, professions, affiliated organizations, and family members.
  • The official side-stories on Mogstation usually contain a wealth of information. It's worth linking to side stories from character pages, if the story references them or reveals information about them.

Other

  • Skywatcher and Chocobokeep - there are quite alot of NPCs - should we have 1 page - with a list of locations - which mostly exists - just needs updated and the newer format tables, or should I start creating every NPC's own page? JohnnySolas (talk)
    • I feel like a single page would be useful enough, and easier to maintain. Would leave the NPC category a bit empty. Freedom4556 (talk) 16:39, 30 April 2022 (UTC)
    • Seems like, for Chocobokeep at least, we need individual pages. Freedom4556 (talk) 02:31, 30 November 2022 (UTC)
  • Desynthesis Rewards - Worked on this one a bit, too Freedom4556 (talk) 16:00, 28 January 2022 (UTC)
  • Gear Pictures
  • Voice actors: Best way to find VAs seems to be to endgame credits. I've already added all VAs from endgame credits from EW and ShB (but there are NPCs missing from 5.X and 6.X patches). This means that most recurring characters already have VAs listed, so if you want to do other expansions, it should go pretty fast. Deo (talk) 15:29, 6 September 2022 (UTC)
    • ARR -
    • ARR patches -
    • Heavensward -
    • Heavensward patches -
    • Stormblood -
    • Stormblood patches -
    • Shadowbringers - Done, with an exception of "Traveling Merchant", idk who that is. Deo (talk) 15:29, 6 September 2022 (UTC)
      • This particular "Traveling Merchant" is the first NPC encountered in the first custscene in Lakeland. Garland Tools Gamer Escape They are meant to be the First's shard of the merchant encountered in the very first custscene in the game, and use an identical model. The name of the merchant driving the wagon in the 2.0 cutscene depends on the city you started in, but they all had identical appearances. Freedom4556 (talk) 16:30, 6 September 2022 (UTC)
    • Shadowbringers patches -
    • Endwalker - Done. Deo (talk) 15:29, 6 September 2022 (UTC)
    • Endwalker patches -

Notes

I know there are many many more things that need done, like updating pictures and fleshing out descriptions, so post everything you see here so that we all know what needs done!

  • Game dialogue for many older MSQ quests and yellow quests. Kasasari Kurasagi (talk) 19:14, 16 May 2022 (UTC)

Request: Spoiler Extension?

I was doing some research on ways to better hide text. For NPCs like Unukalhai, there's some pretty severe spoilers that we would want to display in the same section of their page, but it might be useful to put coverups on some text for the sake of users who visit it by accident. Think we could look into getting this extension for the wiki?ArcaneFocus (talk) 18:21, 10 November 2022 (UTC)

The extension is enabled. Enjoy : ) -Moogle (talk) 18:53, 10 November 2022 (UTC)

Issue with Template:quest list row

There appears to be a problem with calling unlock rewards using Template:Quest list row (see Wandering Minstrel Quests for an example) in which it is limited to 9 rewards. Anything past that has broken formatting, e.g., (UltimateRaid, The Epic of Alexander (Ultimate). - Dr Agon (talk) 08:33, 26 November 2022 (UTC)
